You may be aware that we are currently trying to sell our house, we sold it but unfortunately it all fell through, and we haven’t had much interest in it since, which is very disheartening but it doesn’t stop me constantly updating RightMove and dreaming about my one day home. Lately I have been thinking a lot about the appearance of the house from the front, the windows and doors can make a huge difference. I have just spotted that South Wales based Falcon Installations have 20% off so it would be the perfect time to invest in some new windows and doors – if only I had a new house to put them in!
Windows can make a big different to the look and feel of a house, both inside and out. You can really show your personality off in your design style, and also heat and protect the house if you choose wisely!
When choosing windows the first thing you need to think about is the practicality, long term money and energy saving aspects, for example, double glazing is one of the most effective ways to improve the thermal and acoustic insulation of your home, however triple glazing helps to keep the property warmer for longer, without using any extra energy, as it uses the insulating space between two panes of 4mm thick glass, separated by a strengthened central pane, to slow the escape of heat from a building.
Doors can also make a huge impact on the property. Getting the door right is so important for many reasons including cosmetics, security and energy efficiency. I think that a composite door would be best for us, but I’m not keen on the white uPVC style so am looking to get a wood effect one either in a bold colour or a pretty pastel colour with decorative glass. And of course there will be floral decorations all around it!
